Super-styling
Thinner, sexier and bolder than previous models, the FinePix Z35 is a party camera which loves to be the centre of attention. The latest collection from the FinePix Z-series builds on the show-stopping design of the FinePix Z10fd and FinePix Z20fd. At an incredible 23.9 mm thickness, this camera is just so easy to carry, even when slipped into the tightest of jean pockets. T

Technology and style have always been the benchmark for the Z-series range of Fujifilm cameras. The Z-series über cool design matches the demands of today’s tech-savvy teenager, and the FinePix Z35 has it all. While the camera remains affordable, the specification is as strong as ever, with a sensor resolution of 10 megapixel and a crisp Fujinon 3x zoom lens. 

The Anti-Blur mode means that pictures at gigs and festivals will be pin-sharp, focused and bursting with true-to-life colours. Combine this with the ability to take great shots in low-light with ISO-sensitivity to 1600, Face Detection and Fujifilm’s amazing Scene Recognition Auto; the FinePix Z35 is THE camera to be seen with.

Perfect Shots At The Touch of a Button
Fujifilm’s Scene Recognition Auto (SR Auto) technology cleverly detects a scene without the need to pre-select the mode on the camera. Having identified the most commonly photographed subjects, Fujifilm has developed technology to automatically identify and recognise different scenes; Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Backlit Portrait, Night and Night Portrait. It’s as easy as that.
